Teaching since:
2013

Hi! I’m Hana. Music is my passion, and I have been playing the violin for over 14 years. I have studied under teachers including Jan Coleman (Coleman Studio) and Professor Ron Patterson (University of Washington). I have been teaching violin in various ways since 2013, and my experience includes teaching private students, giving private lessons as a volunteer with Seattle Music Partners, and coaching various young string ensembles.

I was concertmaster of my high school orchestra and played in the Seattle Youth Symphony. I also won first place for solo violin at my regional division of WMEA Solo and Ensemble. Now, I am continuing my studies of the violin at Scripps College.

I believe that a good technical foundation is essential in order to advance your playing, so as a teacher I will ensure that my students have all of the tools necessary to produce a beautiful sound. I also strongly believe that effective practicing is vital to advancement on the violin, so another one of my priorities is teaching my students how to practice efficiently. Additionally, I recognize that all my students have very different goals, and I always to tailor lessons to suit their individual objectives.

Most of all, as a teacher I want to foster in my students a love of the violin and of music. Music adds so much joy and meaning to my life, and helps me connect with amazing people. Through teaching, I hope to share this amazing opportunity with others.

My son has really been enjoying lessons with Hana. His grades in orchestra have dramatically improved. Hana also carries herself with great maturity for her age and I highly recommend her as a teacher for children.
